One open source RDF store that might meet your requirements is SDB [1],
a new database subsystem for Jena.  It uses a conventional relational
database, rewriting SPARQL to SQL. The relational database tools for
load balancing, security, clustering, backup and administration can all
be used to manage the installation.  Currently it works with Oracle, MS
SQL Server, PostgreSQL, MySQL, Apache Derby and HSQLDB databases.
